Steam locomotion has an enduring fascination for many of us and combined with the wonderful scenery of Scotland it becomes utterly irresistible. The Jacobite Steam Train, from Fort William to Mallaig, is one of the longest steam-hauled rail journeys available in Britain today, an 84‑mile round trip through some spectacular scenery that also includes the 21‑arch Glenfinnan Viaduct.

A gentler pace is set as we sail ‘Doon ra Watter’ on the world’s last seagoing paddle steamer, the PS Waverley*, still elegantly plying her trade on the Clyde. There can be no better way to enjoy the gentle beauty of the Argyll hills and the Kyles of Bute than from the deck of this grand old lady. We also enjoy a relaxed and informative cruise on the calm waters of Loch Katrine amid the spectacular scenery of the Trossachs and a boat trip on the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s first rotating boat lift and a modern engineering marvel. We offer two different packages for this tour following the same itinerary: one staying at the Arrochar Hotel and one staying at the Stirling Highland Hotel.

*Please note that the itinerary is subject to the Waverley’s sailing schedule. Should the Waverley not be sailing, an alternative excursion will be provided, featuring a boat trip on Loch Lomond and a guided tour of Inveraray Castle and Gardens.

Tour highlights:

  • Taking a spin on the Falkirk Wheel boat lift
  • Stunning views on the Jacobite steam train
  • Scenic cruise on the Firth of Clyde aboard the vintage paddle steamer ‘Waverley’
  • A captivating sailing on Loch Katrine
